This is one of the reasons why I love Larry Fitzgerald. He's a great player, he knows he's a great player, but after every catch or touchdown he just flips the ball to the ref. You can be good, but be a little humble about it.
There's only one Fitz in this world... Pure class!
Fitz was the same way in college as well. Caught many a TD at Heinz field and went right over to the red and handed him the ball. To me that's a better way to slam ur opponents than some stupid dance. It says, "ho hum, this is too easy". Lol
"Today, I'm officially retiring a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don't want to play it in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep in me, and I will remain a Steeler for life."--Hines Ward
Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders, and Fitz. Not enough like them anymore...

I think it all started with the 24 hour sports channels. Now everyone wants to make onto sports center.
"When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself."
After Tomlin gave him an earful last year for that hanging off the railing stunt, and you'd think he'd get the picture.
I get that he's excited and all but that **** can cost you a game if you aren't careful.

I loved it, one hell of a run back, if it wasn't for the rule I would say let him do it again. I was pumped, they are ther to entertain let, he didn't delay the game or do anything to hurt anyone so why unsportsman like, stupid rule. I think it's worse to spike the ball in front of a team after a touchdown or first down.
It's a rule though but that was freaking hilarious

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...d-punt-return/Steelers punt returner Antonio Brown broke free for what appeared to be an easy touchdown on Sunday against the Redskins — and as he approached the end zone, Brown decided to show just how easy it was.
When he was sure no one could catch him, Brown turned around and ran backward into the end zone, resulting in an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and prompting Steelers coach Mike Tomlin to address Brown and the entire team about it.
According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Tomlin said Brown’s decision to backpedal into the end zone “wasn’t respectable,” and as a result Tomlin decided to talk individually to Brown and to bring it up when addressing the team.
As it turned out, Brown didn’t actually get a touchdown on the return because an illegal block penalty had been called on the Steelers. Which made Brown’s celebration look silly.
